In the end, your intentions don't matter much.
Jacqueline Freeman's insight:

"I recognized that this battle — intention vs. consequences — was the root cause of so much interpersonal discord.

As it turns out, it's not the thought that counts or even the action that counts. That's because the other person doesn't experience your thought or your action. They experience the consequences of your action."

» 15 Hints for Effective Communication - Cultivating Contentment & Happiness | Onward and Upward | Scoop.it
Jacqueline Freeman's insight:

Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) teaches people how to enter into conversations in a deliberate and thoughtful manner, rather than expressing oneself impulsively due to unbridled feelings and stress. The developer of DBT, Marsha Linehan, names three important components of interpersonal effectiveness:

Objective effectiveness

Relationship effectiveness

Self-respect effectiveness

To simplify matters, it can help to determine our priorities before we enter into an interaction with another person.

The Immigration Paradox – Movie – TIPMOVIE.COM

The Immigration Paradox – Movie – TIPMOVIE.COM | Onward and Upward | Scoop.it
Jacqueline Freeman's insight:

My experiences led me to the conclusion that worker's rights are at the base of many societal ills.  Livable wages and enough time off to spend with loved ones, developing self, and giving back to the community would transform our society.  I'm proud to have been the narrative consultant on this important work that examines what's actually at the root of immigration debate.  The makers are so passionate about getting folks to quit listening to the media and speak to each other instead, they've made the film available online for a limited time for less than what you'd pay at Redbox.  Please watch with your loved ones and spread the word!
